Beauty & Functionality: Get the Best of Both Worlds with Dual Roller Blinds
As a must-have piece of the design puzzle, blinds today are available in an endless variety of designs. From Venetians to vertical blinds, honeycombs and roller blinds – we’re spoiled by choice when it comes to window treatments. Although this is far from a bad thing, it can make it difficult to settle for a single design. So, to make it easier for you, I’d like to introduce you to one of the most versatile window treatments – dual roller blinds.
The clever and innovative design of dual roller blinds allows you to have two different blinds on the same window. Typically, dual rollers consist of one blind made of a translucent fabric with UV protection and another in a 100% blackout fabric that completely blocks out the sun. As a result, you can raise the blockout layer to allow some light to filter through without completely blocking your view. And later on, if you want to enjoy some privacy, or create a comfortable atmosphere for sleeping, you can simply lower the blockout blind. This way, you have the ability to switch between two different window coverings depending on your needs at the moment.
However, exceptional light control and utmost privacy aren’t the only benefits of dual roller blinds. You see, when you have both blinds down, your windows receive a double layer of insulation. So, not only do you end up saving on blinds by getting two for the price of one, but you also end up saving on cooling and heating bills by making your home more energy-efficient.
But besides being extremely versatile and having numerous benefits for your home, double roller blinds are an attractive choice as well. Due to their sleek design and being able to be flush-mounted within the window frame, these blinds are an unobtrusive choice for homes and windows of all sizes. Additionally, they come in a variety of colours and patterns allowing them to fit in all kinds of interiors – from traditional to modern, and from residential to commercial. What’s more, due to their soft and simplistic look, roller blinds can be paired with curtains if you want to achieve a more dramatic effect.
Although you may think that double roller blinds need double the maintenance, it’s often not the case. To keep your blinds attractive and clean, all you need to do is wipe them with a clean damp cloth and some mild detergent every couple of months. If you don’t want to bother wiping them, you may need to take them down and give them a good wash once a year.
